It’s no secret, that football is a way of life in Stark County. From the Pro Football Hall of Fame, to the passion of High School football to the general love of the game, nothing really holds the hearts of the residents of Stark County like football. Well most of the residents anyway, as George Border of Massollin proved to be an exception.
Border, 69, was arrested on Tuesday evening after he reportedly pulled out his .12-gauge shotgun to break up a neighbor hood game. Border admitted to police that he was sick of the noise that came from the men playing and wanted to do something about it. According to witnesses, Border pointed the gun at the men playing and fired a shot into the air to break up the game. There were at least four witnesses to the event.
Border was arrested and faces charges for aggravated menacing and discharging firearms, both misdemeanors. He posted a $1,000 bond on Wednesday morning.
